    I do not understand the warm up period! How do you warm up the Air Fryer?

    • Bek January 19, 2017 at 5:42 pm - Reply

      Hi Bernie. might depend on the machine but mine has a button that says warm up which goes on for 5 mins on 80 degrees celcius to warm the machine up and then I cook after that.

        I would doubt it. Chicken will brown on outside before center even defrosts, let alone cook.

          I’ve heard of people cooking an entire chicken so it must be doable. I haven’t tried it myself but I’m amazed at the types off foods cooked in an air fryer.

    Ho Mai brand frozen spring roll come out very well. You buy frozen from Coles woollies. Not the tiny tiny ones, the ones that come in box of only spring roll (not mix of cocktail tiny yum Cha, just box of Spring roll) Ho Mai brand. They about 5 inch long. Preheat to 180. Cook frozen spling wolls for 7 min. Serve with sweet chilli and or plum dipping sauce. As good as Chinese west want.

    Have just started using my Philips Airfryer , looks it bit more of the basic model than yours . First try was unsuccessful as tried cooking cod fillets in breadcrumbs but we’re not like the usual birds eye etc brands , came out looking insipid and tasteless . 2nd try Birdseye Hoki fillets and thin oven chips , very successful. Am today going to try a frozen salmon parcel for myself so keeping my fingers crossed , one question do I follow the temperature on the box or your meat pie one . Hope to hear from you soon . Carol Godwin

    • admin June 25, 2016 at 2:05 am - Reply

      Hi Carol, Glad to hear your having some success.. I use my airfryer all the time and rarely have any food failures. The nice thing about the machine is you can open it multiple times during cooking to check up on the food and adjust the times if necessary. I use the times and temperatures on the box as a guide only. I would be inclined to use the temperature that the box says but keep an eye on the food so it’s not undercooked or overcooked. I rarely have problems because I constantly open the machine to check on it. I hope that helps.

    Thanks I only wanted to get a guideline for reheating frozen/semi frozen pies, very helpful and I’ll be back for more advice, it’s all trial and error but pies are my first.

    I see recipes for chicken but not for pork chops or steaks do you have any

    • admin September 6, 2016 at 6:37 am - Reply

      I don’t make pork chops or steaks in the air fryer. I think they’d be too dry but maybe one day i’ll give it a try. The nice thing about the air fryer though is the ability to open the fryer while it’s cooking to check on it’s progress. It’s super easy to experiment.

      If you come across ones you want to add to this page, i’ll be more than happy to potentially add them.


      • John Smith June 29, 2017 at 10:51 am - Reply

        My first effort was old shoulder pork chop from the freezer. It turnout one one the best chops I had ever had. It had a bit of crackling which was perfect. So, yes, they come come out very good!!

  10. Phil September 16, 2016 at 8:09 pm - Reply

    I’ve just got one, and have used twice, once SFC Chicken Chips, next Colonial Farm Chicken Schnitzels. Each time good but minor adjustments to either time or temp to perfect. I’m happy to contribute end results and hope this page keeps building. BTW: My fryer instructions mention nothing about pre-heating (I triple checked before first use)

    • admin September 16, 2016 at 8:30 pm - Reply

      Hi Phil,

      By all means, if you have any to add let me know the details and I’ll be happy to add it. If possible provide a small thumbnail of the product but if you don’t have one I can just improvise with something.

      As far as the pre-heating, I think it depends on which air fryer you buy. The Philips air fryer that I have has a button that pre-heats it. Everyone’s different air fryer may have slightly different cooking times I would think.. especially if you have no pre-heat option. Pre-heating isn’t always necessary, but the cooking times need to be taken as a guide only because everyone has a different fryer.

      steak great in fryer… put on rack 230 celcius 10 mins……
      remember its all around heat you are cooking both sides at once if on the rack shorter cooking times that way.
      Chicken use Rotisserie should be fine
      PS i have the 5 Star Chef Air Fryer 13L… i did a LOT of research before i bought this unit..used twice..
      Rump Steak on Rack high position 10 mins med rare AWESOME
      Sausages on Rack inverted so low position 10 mins maybe needs 1 or 2 more mins

      maybe we should start a web page for guide and recipe exchange??

    Hi there – Thank you for this page, much appreciated :). Only new to my Phillips Air Fyer. Just cooked a Chiko-Roll & Chips & they were perfectly cooked thanks to you. Pressed cook for 3 mins (to pre-heat) then added Chiko-Roll & cooked for 3 mins, then added frozen chips & for cooked another 8 mins! I did pause half way through and shook. No mess, no fuss… Great! 200C

    Crispy bacons take 10 mins only? It took me around 20mins. Can you give me any tips?

    • admin December 25, 2016 at 3:09 pm - Reply

      Hi Rebeca,

      I’m guessing bacon will depend a bit on the type of bacon cut, thickness, etc. It probably also depends on the air fryer you have. Is yours a Philips like I have? They’re pretty good. The next time I have bacon I’ll double check and adjust as necessary but the nice thing about the air fryer is you can open it during cooking to check up on the food and adjust as necessary.

      Hi Sheryl,

      I would experiment by trying the same time and temp as the Coles Ham & Cheese Croquettes since they are roughly the same size and contain potato. Please let me know if you come up with the winning combination though and I’ll add it to the database.

    Pumpkin (pepita) Seeds. I don’t even bother to wash,just remove as much membrane as possible. I drizzle with chilli and/or garlic oil. Season with herbs, whatever you like but I have been using Italian herbs a lot lately. Place in tray UNDER the basket to stop them flying around, especially as they dry out. 200 deg C for 6 – 8 minutes. Depends on size and volume, check, put on for further 2 – 3 minutes at a time. Great as a snack.

      Hi Geoff, it was the unit of measurement ie, g (grams) and temperature that would not register. It would not let me proceed without those. Working at home on my Samsung tablet, so maybe an issue with that.

        Hmmm.. interesting. I haven’t got a Samsung tablet to test with, but i’ve tested with my ipad and samsung Galaxy S5 and it seems to work. Oh well, I’ll try and investigate it a bit further if I can find someone else with a samsung tablet.

        Thanks for the recipes though Diane. I’ll try and find time after work today or tomorrow to add them to the database.

      Hi Joyce

      Unfortunately I don’t have the cooking times you seek. I’ve never made scotch eggs before let alone in the air fryer. I’m not sure what the sausage rolls you speak of look like but if they are anything like the ones in Australia then they should be fine in an Air Fryer.

    I was just looking through FAQ. The question about wax paper or foil ….. i just mention….. 1 Wax Paper has wax coating I dont believe it harmless i dont go around eating wax candles i would avoid putting into a heated area… 2. Foil well i have not yet found an ideal size tray to put into my fryer so i make a little tray by folding corners of foil and it sort of has a edge like a tray and it works well…

    I hope this can be used to help answer the question

    deep frying frozen breaded shrimp in standard, oil based deep fryer usually takes about 3-3.5 minutes to get them just right (these are raw breaded and frozen) and in any standard air fryer takes around 9 minutes for the shrimp to cook through…

    in a QSR setup this kind of time taken to cook items doesnt really work for the business… any ideas on whether air frying will ever make it as the tool of choice for a “healthier” deep fried QSr food item?
